A snapshot with my NEX 7 and the SEL 35 turned ultimately to this

Certainly Photoshop would have given greater latitude, but I only used Lightroom

Here is the original snapshot I cropped it from and used the tone point curve and adjustment brush within Lightroom to get the image above. Fairly quick and easy, and to me acceptable. This was not to be a gallery portrait, just a "picture within a picture" which the cropping of the 24 meg sensor allows so well when reviewing candid snapshots.
